    Pond safety

    The main risk with ponds is that children will fall in and drown. It is best to avoid building a pond until a child is at least five years old. If you do have a pond, then fill it in. If you must have a pond in the garden, follow these tips to minimise the risks
    Position the pond where it can be seen from the house.
    Design the pond with gently sloping edges this is safer than a sudden drop into deep water.
    Cover small ponds with a combination of heavy duty wooden trellis and wire mesh. Safety grids that sit just below the surface of the water are also available from a number of retailers.
